Cool Things to do in Coolum

Head north of the Maroochy River on the Sunshine Coast and you’ll find yourself within striking distance of Coolum – a beautiful ocean-front region that’s positively buzzing with cool things to do and incredible places to stay.

Let’s start with the holiday digs.

How about a break at Novotel Sunshine Coast’s unique and newest accommodation offering – the Grand Overwater Bungalow?  It’s reputed to be the most lavish place to holiday on the Sunshine Coast – with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining space for 8, chic interior décor and not one, but 2 decks overlooking the resort’s sparkling private lagoon.

And it’s all just a stroll from Novotel’s highlights – the swimming pool, bar, restaurant and activity beach.

For more affordable stays, try the resort’s Executive Rooms – freshly refurbished and popular with couples and families.

Novotel Sunshine Coast is at Twin Waters – perfect for family-friendly holidays, romantic escapes or group getaways.

While you’re in the Coolum area, why not head to Oz Ski Resort? Despite the name, you’ll find nary a snowflake in sight. Rather this world-class water-ski park is the dream-made-real of 4-time world water-skiing champion, Emma Shears.

After a stellar career in which she won just about every accolade the sport can dish up, Emma and her husband opened Oz Ski Resort.  Emma now coaches water-skiers – from beginners to advanced – and is thrilled to share her considerable skills on the water.

If water-skiing doesn’t float your proverbial, Oz Ski Resort offer heaps of tow toy fun – from tubing to banana boats.

And right next door is Blast Aqua Park, where the kids can get water-logged to their heart’s content.

Oz Ski Resort is a great option for birthday parties plus there’s a Pro Shop for the serious skiers and an on-site café.

Whether you’re after laid-back luxury or high-speed action, the Sunshine Coast has the holiday for you. Check out all the possibilities and get excited at
